Who's that directing Gergiev's new opera?main
The name’s Solti.
She’s the daughter of King Georg and she’s in the thick of rehearsing Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, opening at the Mariinsky in St Petersburg on July 23. Her father gave its London premiere with the Royal Opera House in 1961.
I think it’s her major house debut. Valery Gergiev liked and admired old King Georg and took over the World Orchestra for Peace when he died. Nice to see the link extended.
